So I went through this whole phase when I was younger (not that long ago, only a few years, but I digress) where I came up with all these ideas for reincarnations of old literature characters in the modern world so that they could change their fates. One of the best (but sadly, also the least developed) ideas, I was calling King: A Story. It was about Ila, reincarnation of Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, the one who gave Arthur his sword and (according to this story) Guinevere's (as seen here) identical twin sister.
According to the story, Arthur was supposed to marry Nimue, but accidently married Guinevere (everything was arranged, fyi), so Nimue had to go take her sister place, learn magic, and be able to do things that an oracle had foreseen long before their time.
When they're reincarnated, Ila remains blissfully unaware of the past until she moves with her twin sister (still Guinevere, but now named Eleanor, but called Nora) and their parents (now Igraine and Uther, Arthurs parents back then). At this school, pretty much every important player is there. The "true" version of the King Arthur story is retold, everyone finds out everyone else is hiding secrets not just from their past lives, but also in the present (mostly, king arthur/ haden is pretending not to remember because he doesn't know that anyone else does, and doesn't want to be called crazy).
Once Ila accepts that the sudden flashes and repeats of nightmares from her childhood are memories of her past life, Ila goes through her old dream journals, realizes that the handwriting is not hers, nor is the wording, and that every dream is in chronological order from start to finish. Ila even ends up making Morgan le Faye and Merlin (who are pushing her to remember) read them just so they know the pain that she went through watching her sister marry the man she loved, then proceed to cheat on him (with a maid, not Lancelot, but ironically enough is now his little sister), but on top of everything else, she had to do so in silence as part of her magical role, and when she broke that silence, she died a violent death and no one even realized where she had gone and what had happened. Until she shared these journals with Merlin and Morgan, they'd just assumed she'd gone back to her lake and never left.
I never finished the story, but I've been working on the plot a bit more recently because it really interests me and I really want to finish it someday. Even if reincarnation has been done to death.... was that a pun?
Hestia (Ἑστία) never plays a part in any Greek myth. Even though she wasn't exciting enough to make it into their stories, the Greeks honored Hestia with their dinnertime prayers, asking her to bless their food and protect their homes. City-states had a central hearth dedicated to the goddess, where the fire never went out. She was the third of the virgin goddesses. To the Romans she was the patron goddess of the Vestal Virgins, who in the Temple of Vesta kept the hearth fire of Rome forever burning. Hestia is one of three virgin goddess, along with Athena and Artemis."
"Aphrodite (Ἀφροδίτη) was so lovely that the Greeks couldn't imagine her being born in the usual way. Instead she sprang from the white beauty of the sea foam. In an odd arrangement, this most beautiful goddess was married to the only ugly Olympian, Hephaestus, the deformed forge god. Some said that Zeus forced her into the marriage; others, that she chose him herself. Either way, her vows did not stop her from having many affairs. Gods and mortal men found her charms simply irresistible. Whenever on business abroad, Aphrodite was pulled through the sky by a swan-drawn cart. The swan and the dove were both symbols of her grace. In Greece her worship was popular, although the temple priestesses were rumored to be prostitutes. Our word aphrodisiac, a passion-inducing substance, is derived from her name."
This is my picture of Eowyn and her true love, Faramir from The Lord of the Rings. I made this from Lord of the Rings and Hobbit maker in Doll Divine website. I love this couple, but Arwen and Aragorn are my favorite and Eowyn and Faramir were great together.
It's Eponine and Marius from the famous musical, LÚs Miserables. Marius doesn't end up with Eponine but I find them to be an adorable couple. The movie is fantastic and sad at the same time. I absolutely LOVE it.
